Rated 5 out of 5Â by Hili29 Keeping warm and dry
I was lucky enough to get this coat in the sale so a good bargain. It feels lovely on and the zip off fur bit is gorgeous. I am looking forward to being very snug in the cold weather. I've been able to wear it in the rain recently with just a t shirt underneath - it kept me really dry. The only down side is that it would be better if it flared out at the bottom more like real parka. It can feel a little restricting when walking but you can pull the zip up from the bottom to help with that.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Bec1001 Love this coat
I love this coat. The fit is amazing and is very flattering as it comes in at the waist. Its lightweight but also very warm. Also waterproof. The rain just slides off and what is left sits on the top. I am 5ft 7 so was looking for a coat that was nice and long and this is great for me.
The only slight drawback is that the two way zip can be a tad difficult to do up sometimes. Annoying when your out and about and need to zip up quickly!

This coat was brought as an Xmas present and the couple of times I've worn it in the rain it seems very effective. The rain seems to sit on top of the coat surface. I really brought this coat as a rain Mac but I have also worn it in the recent cold weather and it has also kept me very warm.

Practical and stylish. Could be even more tailored and then it'd be knock out.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Snowstrop So glad I got it.Perfect
Was going to get a top make waterproof 'duvet' coat ie one filled with down until I read in the newspapers about the terrible injuries inflicted on these poor geese and ducks when they are 'live plucked' . So , I looked at the alternatives.
Long length , hooded, properly waterproof and stylish warm coats are thin on the ground .
Then I saw this Cinderdale mac. Nice green colour , well tailored, totally waterproof , windproof longer length quality coat. Im a size 12 (thats a medium fit) 5ft6" and it comes about an inch above my knee - another inch lower would have been better to stop rain dripping onto my knee but all the coats I tried were like that .Slight nuisance but not a major problem .
On the Berghaus website it says the Cinderdale mac has ' Hydroloft' insulation beneath the quilted lining, to keep you warm . This must be extremely thin as
you can't tell by look and feel. However, I have used this now in biting wind around -1 over a thin jumper and woollen cardi, and not felt cold, and theres room for an armless fleece if the weather gets worse. It IS waterproof , and the outer shell dries quickly when you come in .
The zip is a two way one, so great for opening a bit from the bottom when you sit down for driving . The poppers on the front flap are sturdy and dont come undone on their own.
The hood is detachable. Because I have long hair and wear it up, I found this pulled the hood backwards on my head , so the tightening cord was set too far back and the hood wouldnt stay on . I wanted the fur hood to come down round my face snugly like a parka . Solved this by letting the cord out completely , taking the bottom popper off the hood at each side and attaching it to a spare popper I found under a flap . It was one of two poppers being used to help attach the hood to the coat, but only one was needed, so the 'spare' one was perfect. This done both sides, the fur then came round my face with no gaps. Perfect. I love this coat.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Carol61 Great coat
This coat caught my eye straight away because of the tailored fit. It fits really well without being restrictive. The colour of the fur trim compliments coat really well too. I got the green colour which is more vibrant than khaki, which is nice.Very happy with this item. Water proofing looks good so far. Coat is warm without looking over-sized.
Certainly not a cheap coat but I would consider as an investment over several years.
